NNLM supports the goals of the NLM Strategic Plan 2017-2027: A Platform for Biomedical Discovery and Data-Powered Health. This effort is led by the National Center for Data Services. Two of the key goals of this plan are to accelerate discovery and advance health through data-driven research and to build a workforce for data-driven research and health. Through funding, education, and outreach, the Network serves as a resource for librarians, students, and interested individuals to learn about library roles in data science and data management and emerging trends in supporting biomedical research.
Enhance your professional profile by building data competencies, learning about data tools, and engaging with data organizations.
Discover resources to help you get started in or level up providing data services at your institution.
